Ender will be back in action on Sunday afternoon in the day’s 7th race. Quincy Hamilton will be back aboard for the $15,000 optional claiming race going 5.5 furlongs over the main track.
The race is a small field, seven horses, and we drew post six.
There does seem to be some speed up front, though not as much as I would have thought for 5.5 furlongs. It will be interesting to see this one unfold.
Group 2 will be in the paddock for this one.
We were also hoping to get Laura Ray in this weekend but that race did not fill. That may result in an alternate plan for her if we can’t get the right level of race for short on the turf to fill next weekend – most likely another try at 7.5 furlongs and see if we can get her home.
We are looking into getting a day for a closing get together. Traditionally that has been the second to last weekend of the meet, but one of my (Ted) sons decided to get married that weekend so we will be away, but we’re looking to see if something else may be available. We will keep you posted on that and a seating spot for Sunday – keeping in mind that Sunday is Corgis and Cupcakes day at Canterbury and space could be tough to come by.
Look for a race preview on Saturday and we’ll have more info then on space and, hopefully, on the potential get together.
